now i gave installed new kernel with xfs--support and i have changed my
old ext3-filesystem to XFS
my old filesystem is now on /dev/sda9 (is only the backup but bootable )
and the new on the /dev/sda1-8
I use lilo and i have two bootoptions
1) boot /dev/sda2 (that is / ) ==> /boot is on /dev/sda1
2) boot /devb/sda9 (in sda9 is all / and /boot and all other mountpoints)
The kernel and the init-file is in both /boot-directorys the same and this
kernels are both supported XFS
I can boot /dev/sda9 but this filesystem is ext3 but i can mount under
that system all XFS-devices from /dev/sda1-8
If i boot /dev/sda2 then comes the following message
You can not install the bootloader in a xfs partition. Lilo or grub will
overwrite sector 0 which is where the XFS superblock lives.
You can install the bootloader either in the mbr or on a partition which
does not contain a XFS filesystem (like swap).
It might just be your lucky day, if you only knew.
